DOWNEY, CA - Tragedy has struck another man in uniform. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department is trying to piece together what led to the murder of Downey police officer Ricardo Galvez. Known around town as “Ricky,” police say he was sitting in his personal vehicle when two men ambushed him, shooting him while he sat in the parking lot of the police station.

A cop nearby heard the shots and chased the gunmen down until they bailed on their car and escaped on foot. Three men were later caught however, two believed to be the men who murdered officer Galvez.

Homicide detectives do not believe this was a random attack and it's likely the the suspects knew the officer.
